stocks go up endlessly as part of romney's promise to go for north american self-sufficient energy. remember, romney wanted to get there by drill bit. obama wants to get there via renewables. if you buy the coal stocks, you're fighting a coal-hating eta that just got four years of new life. these stocks are sells even after today. i think they still go lower. there's no safety net. if you insist on coal exposure because you think china is coming back, may i suggest you buy one of the rails. how about union pacific? i understand natural gas moves up a little bit when the utilities are not going to reach anymore. it may make sense to be in one of those stocks. union pacific is the best in show. i will add that union pacific has the further to fall. but it is certainly going to be the winner of the group. second, the defense stocks. double whammy. you might be buying defense stocks because of romney wanting to save the navy from sequestration. now you're most likely going to have sequestration. time to do some trimming. how about the china fashion -- bashing stocks themselves? governo
was this question about who was the leader of the democratic party. i don't think you'll see mitt romney be a part of that conversation. i would imagine he'll take some time off and kind of heal from all of this. a loss is a loss. and then decide for himself. i actually would not be surprised if we don't really see him on the national political scene much anymore. >> certainly, it is tough because you put your heart and soul into this many campaign. it is hard for him. high profile republicans are treating mitt romney like a pinata now, and that is not the gop strategy to court hispanic voters. a lot of moderates jumped on the mitt romney bandwagon. theyn't waed to raise him up and see him win. where do these moderates now turn for a leader and a leadership role in their party? >> i think a lot of these folks are looking towards 2016 already. i'll be honest with you. 24 hours later, the body is still twitching a bit, and the phones started ringing about who's next, who are we going to talk about, who's going to be the leader of the party? the first thing you need when you have a problem is first a

the problem with mitt romney it depended on the time of day and the week on where he was. that was part of the problem. when you have a guy who agrees in the first debate, which everybody everyone says he won, he agreed with barack obama on seven of the ten issues. instead of drawing bright lines, blurring them to do this passive aggressive campaign, where you say i'll be a better manager, but not tell you where i stand. people will go with the politician they know, not the one they don't know. >> eric, are you just saying that what the gop had was a mitt romney problem or a gop problem? if it is, what do you think it is? >> i think it's both. part of the problem republicans have, they have been successful for 30 years and have forgotten they can't just talk inside the echo chamber. they have to explain things to people. it's hard to woo hispanic voters when they think you hate them. they get that vibe from republicans. >> it's wait the message is delivered? >> freedom and equality of opportunity sell to everyone. the republicans have a great message, but they have to remember that peop

: the president secured a second term thanks in part to building a massive ground game, coupled with an eay iestment in negative television ads defining romney. to get a better understanding of how mr. obama did it, and for an inside look at what hindered romney's campaign, we talk with three journalists covering different aspects of the race. they are philip rucker of "the washington post, who has been traveling with romney all year. carol lee of the "wall street journal," who covers the white house. and slate columnist sasha issenberg, author of the book, "the victory lab, the secret science of winning campaigns." now in new york city. carol leigh let me start with you. at what point did the obama campaign, did the obama team begin to think about how they wanted to position themselveses and how did they do it? >> very early. they-- the first step that they took was to determine that they were going to run in a terrible economy, and they needed a message that would be sailiable, regardless of what was happening in the economy, so they settled on this notion that they wanted to make the ele

. the president did not bring his a game. part of it was, romney had a huge advantage going into it. any challenger in the first debate wins by just showing up. it was a hyper advantage for romney. all romney had to do was not look that evil. >> he had been to about 20 debates. >> the debate brought the election back to where it had been. it was really close. neither one would get a mandate. >> the democratic convention was a pretty interesting moment. democrats were not as dispirited. the debate you raised that impression, but not entirely. the republicans had a 1950's view of america. nuclear family. that is how their nominees have been. democrats come from dysfunctional homes and triumph over nontraditional circumstances. it is a different world. i think it led to some under estimation of the democratic coalition. >> the underlying assumption of romney's campaign. they cannot turn out what they did in 2008. young people cannot turn out like they did in 2008 when somebody cannot find a job, and yet they did. that knocked the republicans on their heels. hispanics and young people increa
story line on why romney lost on the "today" show today. here is the first part of that excuse. >> they decided they're going to have this negative personal campaign to try to convince people that romney was a bad person. they didn't attack his policies very much. they said he was a vulture capitalist, that he was a bona fide bureaucrat married to an equestrian. dr. peterson, first the president's camp didn't call romney vulture capitalist, rick perry did. >> exactly. >> second, how does haley barbour say with a straight face that romney was innocent of negative campaign tactics? i seem to recall about 37 lies delivered in about two weeks. >> i mean, again, this is unfathomable and maybe a little bit of a waste of our time. remember, we did address and attack the policies. he just kept changing positions. when we wanted to talk about reproductive rights for women, he want 20d change his position. it's not that people didn't deal with romney on the issues, that's the campaign and pundits and news media. it was a very, very comprehensive, i think, engagement with what mr. romney

or elsewhere, the economy ought to be on track to do quite well. we're out of the worst part of this economic mess. some economists said that mitt romney would keep that promise if he had been elected, of 12 million jobs, because the economy was already on track to produce those under obama's policies. so that's on the positive side. but i totally agree with your analysis of the election in terms of the middle class and what economic changes the voters were looking for. obama won that industrial belt, what had been and may again be the industrial belt, from wisconsin and michigan to ohio to pennsylvania. with the votes of working people, african-american, latino, and white. and i think it's very important, when you see the effect of the auto rescue in ohio, for example, 60% of the voters in that state said it was a good thing, and they voted overwhelmingly for president obama. that's a signal of the kind of policies that people want. they don't care if it's a lot of government or a little government. they want it to work. and the auto rescue worked. >> richard, what about political capital? y

, it is a fundamental part of campaigning. romney led -- the romney campaign and let that go unanswered, let all those attacks go unanswered. there was a problem. as he saw on the other side, we look at the house. they did the exact opposite. once they knew they were attacked on medicare, they went on the offensive immediately and look where we are. we're pretty much the same place at the house. the house campaign went negative early and the results are very apparent that it again works. and so, just for the future, i look at this again as learning. this is 2004 all over again. the republicans are the one with the wake-up call this time instead of the democrats. so decide i've changed and we need to look back at this election and they can review our turnout techniques and go from there. >> thank you, blaise. i'm going to turn to eleanor clift. she's a distinguished writer, contributor to newsmagazine a daily beast website and a panel or syndicated talk show, the macaw clicker. but having from their perspective? >> first of all, my chair is lower than the two ladies. but for my political hits, a 10 fee
-- the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. it is true that she -- that the president one north dakota slightly less than -- at mitt romney 1 north dakota at slightly less than the president's won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is easier for moderate, centrist democrats to feel the republican voters than for i moderate, centrist republicans to feel for democrats. there is a lot of stuff to talk about
't like -- they didn't like his style. >> i think that's part of the reason anyway why mitt romney -- why conservatives never fell in love with mitt romney because he never went that far. i think they knew he was more moderate than he was letting on. and also that he did say things like the president has a good family. he's a good man. i just disagree with him. i don't think conservatives -- and you tell me -- felt like he savaged the president enough. like he didn't bring out the knives sharp enough after the president. >> mitt romney? >> yeah. like it was never personal enough. >> well, i just remember talking to people very close to the president who said, who are they most afraid of? what candidate would they be most afraid of who could really give president obama a run for his money? it was jon huntsman. i guess republicans don't like winning either. i'm serious. >> the responsibility lies with the candidate to pull voters to him. and i will say in mitt romney's case -- >> yeah. >> -- mitt romney had 100 different sister soulja moments over the past three years he could have taken. w
. this caused them to overestimate romney's likely vote in the swing states. they were wrong. those who rejected electorate in 2008 were right. lesson learned all around. poll aggregator real clear politics was not part of the study. but it correctly predicted every state with florida still undecided. the biggest money loser in the general election campaign was casino mogul sheldon addleson who spent $53 million on the romney effort as well as funding senate and house races off. of his candidates lost except one. nevada senator-elect dean heller defeated addleson foe shelly berkeley, a democrat. forbes put it in perspective. $53 million may sound like a chuck of change, it's not much for a guy worth $20.5 billion. imagine an average person with $100,000 net worth, buying a pair of shoes for $250. you'd care if you lost them, but you wouldn't be ruined. finally one kentucky candidate learned the hard way that every vote counts. robert mcdonald finished in a dead heat with to livia bilou for time seat on the walton city council. one vote that was not cast would have put him over the top. only one
, romney would have won ohio. that's a mechanical turnout operation. >> i mean, the most stunning part of this is barack obama's turnout operation and his political team, what they did was nothing short of extraordinary. extraordinary. but mike, look at these numbers. 2006. democrats won independents by 16 points. in 2010, republicans won independents by 16 points in the off-year election. two years later, republicans are wiped out. you have parties that rise and parties that fall. not in 40-year increments like we were used to. in two, in four-year increments. >> yeah. and you have to think that part of that must be rooted in the rhetoric, the language that so many americans heard for so many months in the republican primaries. you know, that scared some people among us, a lot of people among us, clearly. so my question to you, doris, in terms of history, the language of this campaign sometimes verging on the abusive to us, the voters, it's not new in history. it's not new in campaigns. i mean, lincoln heard it running for office. >> no. in fact, we sometimes we look like we're wimps
that debate, opposition soften the bit. also remember mitt romney this is the mandatory health care plan in massachusetts. he didn't really emphasize an attack on obamacare as part of his campaign. a lot of conservatives are second-guessing but romney campaign for not being more forceful about that. what we have known for some time is older people are suspicious of obamacare, that their benefits won't be the same and the quality and access for older americans will be diminished. there was a lot of political energy out there but it dissipated somewhat and the republican nominee didn't focus on the issue. dagen: take care. connell: walmart announcing it will kick off its holiday sales rush. 8:00 thanksgiving day, the earliest start they ever had. dagen: is walmart a buy at a holiday season? today's trade. cheryl: retail for the christmas holiday, this is a huge, the biggest for the retailers, they are gearing up and a lot of folks want to look at their portfolio as far as what retailers they want to own heading into the shopping season. the dow down today, that is microsoft, looking at wal
